Making photographs indoors during the full light of day can present a variety of exposure challenges to real estate photographers in terms of dynamic range. From light spiking through windows to shadows lurking behind walls, the eye will adjust to balance these harsh conditions automatically. Our cameras in-turn rely on the photographer’s vision and decision-making to produce the necessary range of exposures required to cover the gamut and generate a realistic composition of the scene in post.

Regardless of the style of shooting, wherever dynamic range presents a problem, HDRsoft is there with a well-stocked toolbox of creative solutions. In this video, we’ll take some time to explore a few samples and useful tips to adding depth and speed to any real estate interiors workflow via the creative power of Photomatix Pro and Adobe Camera Raw.
